When looking to buy subsidized health insurance, you either need to get on healthcare.gov or to your state’s Marketplace. Whether your state operates its own Marketplace or a part of the federal Marketplace, the way you are going to purchase insurance is the same.
You will need to create an account and provide information on your household and income. Based on what you provided, you will see plans that are available to you. Just like getting private health insurance, you can compare plans to find the one that suits you and your family’s needs the best.
To begin this process, you first need to have an account. Once you create an account and create questions and answers for securing your account, you can then login. After logging in, enter your ZIP code and income. These will be the two basic information that will determine which plans you are eligible to purchase.
As for logging in, you can click here to open the healthcare.gov log in page. On the other hand, those who live in states where a separate Marketplace is run, click on your state below to open the login page.
